Brad Felt: Bio



As a performer, composer and educator, Brad Felt strives to take the all-inclusive Detroit music tradition to the next level, while bringing the euphonium and tuba into the 21st century as front-line improvising instruments in the idiom of modern jazz.  His Detroit musical connection has landed him in the bands of everyone from Roy Brooks to Martha Reeves.  Mr. Felt is a veteran of multiple overseas tours including two stints with Howard Johnson’s Gravity.  He has received two fellowships from The National Endowment For The Arts for composition/ performance and one from The Michigan Council For The Arts.  Brad Felt’s latest group – The Brad Felt NuQuartet Plus can be heard at various venues and on their new CD, “First Call”, which has earned a prestigious position on Ed Love's (WDET FM) famous "Highly Recommended For 2009" list.  In addition to teaching at his home studio, he has been an applied improvisation instructor at The University Of Toledo since 2003.
